Gen. 1:1 - Bereshit Bara Elokim Et HaShamayim V’et HaAretz.

Gen. 1:1 - Bereshit Bara Elokim Et HaShamayim V’et HaAretz.
 
There are 28 letters in this pasuk. 28 is the numerical value of the Hebrew word Koah (power). Indeed, nothing more than the act of creation reveals the power of the Creator. Is this what is subtly be suggested by having exactly this many letters in precisely this place?

The Reshei Tevot of this pasuk are Bet, Bet, Alef, Alef, Hey, Vav, and Hey. Their numerical value is 22. As we know, there are 22 letters in the Hebrew alef-bet. Also, as we know, G-d created the universe by “speaking” it into being. G-d said, “let there be” and there was. Thus, G-d spoke the universe into being. What G-d “spoke” were words. Words are made up of letters, specifically the 22 letters of the Hebrew alef-bet. The Kabbalah teaches that the entire universe and everything within it are just different combinations of Hebrew letters. Thus, the entire universe is one construct after another of the 22. Is this being subtly suggested by having the Reshei Tevot of the first pasuk add up to 22?

The Sofei Tevot of this first pasuk add up numerically to 1,271.
